In a movie based on a true story, Carrie Underwood will make her acting debut in a film about teen surfing champion and shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton. The new flick is called Soul Surfer and Underwood along with some other big names will be making this real story of survival come to life on the big screen. In fact, the film sounds pretty damn promising!

Along with Underwood, Dennis Quaid, Helen Hunt, AnnaSophia Robb will star in the movie “Soul Surfer,” said to be directed by Sean McNamara.

According to Variety, the movie is said to be based on Hamilton’s autobiography, which focuses on the surfer’s life when she turned her tragedy into a triumph. The young surfer surfer lost her arm in a shark attack when she was 13 and then went to compete and eventually win professional surfing championships.

So what role will Carrie Underwood take on? While Quaid and Hunt are set to play Hamilton’s parents, Carrie Underwood will take on the role of a church youth leader named Sarah Hill. About her friend Sarah, Hamilton told, “Sarah has been my best friend since I was very young. After my shark attack, she always knew what to say to push me on.”

You can catch Carrie Underwood in Soul Surfer when the flick comes out this summer 2010. Will you be checking Underwood’s movie out? Let’s just hope this film does Bethany Hamilton’s story some justice.
